OH! All those umbrellas make sense now.
As flares ignite to the band’s tongue-in-cheek safety video and pits begin to open before the band take to the stage, Bring Me The Horizon’s coronation is a circus of chaos from the off. The cheerleader skip of ‘Happy Song’ is loud, proud and captures an energy that clings on for the duration.
Any questions about Bring Me The Horizon’s ability to deliver on such a grand stage are quickly dismissed via flitting production and the band’s gleeful attack. Oli Sykes’ power stance as pained ringleader is off-set by a mischievous grin and underpinned by razor sharp backing. Every visit to the bands catalogue, past, present and future, sounds forward-thinking and devastatingly relevant.
Umbrellas or crowns, Bring Me The Horizon reign.
